Navigon 8110 - 3D maps on your Car GPS
Navigon has the Navigon 8110 out in the UK and it comes with new 3-D maps that allow you to see the contour of the roads and landscape around you. I assume they've figured out how to show you what's n the other side of that hill when you are coming up to its peak.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this come out on a Garmin device here soon. The recent introductions including the Garmin Colorado handheld and the Nuvi 500/550 series announced yesterday they are showing the basic components of this: 3-D views on the Colorado, that allow you to see what lies ahead in a similar point of view. While the Nuvi 500/550 has the normal 2-D topographical maps, it sets the stage for other offerings and map options that must have Garmin playing with alternative representations of how you would like to drive down the road.
